Promise to Nadia
"Ten years ago, Zana Muhsen escaped from her life of slavery in Yemen into which her father had sold her as a child bride, leaving behind her baby son, her sister Nadia, and Nadia's two small children. She recounted her harrowing story in her book Sold, which instantly became an international bestseller." "As she left, Zana made a solemn promise to Nadia that she would not rest until her sister and the children had obtained their freedom as well. And as both the publicity and public support grew, Zana felt sure the men of her family and the governments of Britain and Yemen would be forced to respond. But she was wrong." "Instead Zana found herself in a new nightmare, one where international interest led to the attraction of sharks and con men. They made promises they had no intention of keeping, charged extortionate fees and promptly disappeared. Zana watched the fighting fund created by her book disappear, but refused to give up her struggle to free Nadia and the children."--BOOK JACKET.
